All good interior design starts with a functional space plan, and this Dallas townhouse that we furnished last year was no exception. It is three stories with the garage on the first level, and the main living areas on the second and third. I definitely got my exercise in while running up and down the stairs directing my movers. We installed this whole thing, right down to the last piece of artwork, all in one day, so it’s not all that often that I think to video tape my clients’ reactions right after an installation, mostly because installs are so fast paced and by the time it’s over, I am quite frankly exhausted.
In this particular case, however, my client was away at work all day and her mother was there to be able to watch out for her to get home and then guide her up the stairs into her newly furnished townhouse. While we get this response all the time, often accompanied by tears (happy ones of course), it is a nice experience to be able to capture it on video. This is the part of interior design that I live for and what makes it all so worthwhile. I believe it with all of my being that we impact the daily lives of people by creating spaces they love to live in. Be on the lookout for our next post with the official reveal of the “after” photos!
